First Poster and Trailer for Taken 2 Starring Liam Neeson and His "Skills"
06.22.12 by Ryan
It seems appropriate that the first poster for Taken 2 should arrive in the form of a U.K. quad poster and that the first footage should arrive in an international trailer.
Set a year after the events of 2009 thriller Taken, the sequel sees CIA operative Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) feeling comfortable enough to head back to Europe after previously helping save his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) from being kidnapped during her French vacation. Arriving in Istanbul for vacation, Mills is surprised by Kim and his ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) — who is now maybe his wife wife instead of an ex-wife? — and finds himself and Lenore quickly grabbed by the father of Kim's former kidnapper (Rade Sherbedgia). While we're sure that Neeson will use his "particular set of skills" to save himself and his wife, Grace will also have to help out as well.
Taken 2 was written by Robert Mark Kamen and Luc Besson, who also wrote Taken. Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3) directed the sequel.
